City’s Property Revaluation Process to Begin May 1st

The City will begin its full reevaluation of all properties this year. Site visits to all residential and commercial/industrial properties will begin on May 1, 2017, and continue over the next several months. 

Full revaluations occur every nine years and each property’s exterior and interior are inspected to determine if the information on file is accurate. The last full revaluation was completed December of 2008 for the 2009 billing cycle.

After a competitive bid process, a contract was awarded to Vision Government Solutions Inc. to conduct the reevaluation. All Vision employees will carry photo identification and a letter of introduction from the Tax Assessor's Office. They will undergo background checks and the Pawtucket Police Department will have their vehicle information.

Residents signed up for alerts through the code red system will receive calls when inspectors will be in their neighborhood. Knowing that many households may not be home during the daytime hours, Vision will re-visit any who are not home during the initial neighborhood inspection after 5:00 p.m. If they are still unable to inspect, the resident will receive a letter from Vision encouraging them to call and schedule an appointment at their earliest convenience. These efforts are being made to ensure accurate valuations. 

At the end of the revaluation process in April of 2018, each property owner will receive a letter describing their property and the proposed new valuation. Please note, the current tax rate will not be used for the new valuation; 2018 rates will not be available until May when the City Council approves the budget.

Frequently asked questions can be answered by going to the Tax Assessor’s website. Anyone with further questions should reach out to the Tax Assessor’s Office at 401-728-0500, ext. 333.
